Soft objects are widely used in day-to-day life, because they are safer and more comfortable than hard objects. They also provide a natural and rich haptic sensation, so soft interfaces can improve emotional attachment and entertainment value in human-machine interaction.

The FuwaFuwa sensor is a small, flexible, and wireless module that effectively measures shape deformations in soft objects using IR-based directional photo-reflectivity measurements. Multiple embedded FuwaFuwa sensors can easily convert any stuffed object into a touch-input device that can detect both touch position and surface displacement. Also, since the sensors re battery-powered and equipped with wireless communication, they can be easily installed in any common soft object without affecting its soft properties.
